Samsung Galaxy S3 GPU Benchmark Leaks; Absolutely Trumps Its Competition!

As the Galaxy S III unveiling date is coming closer, so are the rumors getting thick. Today’s rumor is about the GPU performance of the Galaxy S III.

The folks over at Phone Arena found the benchmark scores of the Galaxy S III GPU on GLBenchmark left by an unknown tester. The benchmark scores of the handset absolutely blow its competition out of the water. This includes NVidia’s Tegra 3 and Qualcomm’s S4, two of the biggest competition to the next Exynos SoC. The handset even managed to beat the iPhone 4S PowerVR SGX543MP2 GPU in quite a few handsets as well.

It is still unknown as to what GPU the SGS3 will use, but rumors indicate the Exynos 4412 SoC will pack in the same ARM Mali-400MP GPU as found in the Galaxy S2, except that it will be clocked higher. This higher clock speed will lead to about a 50% performance boost, on paper at least! Considering the Galaxy S III used in the benchmarks is still a prototype unit, there is a very high possibility that the retail device will perform even better!

Readers interested in checking out the benchmark scores should head over to Phone Arena for the appropriate screenshots.
